What's up with the userAgent string?
I originally tweeted something about this, but two days later I'm still amused to learn the history of the mess that is the userAgent string
I made the mistake of finally looking seriously at the browser userAgent string, and asked my co-workers WTH??! And @larsberg pointed me at https://webaim.org/blog/user-agent-string-history/
And now I’m informed, but not amused.
Started the weekend right with a double #PowerRed blood donation at the Red Cross. Now home to make a big breakfast for the family; crepes, homemade bacon, coffee.
Go donate blood, it feels great!
Don’t be fooled by the “we care about privacy” smokescreen from Google and Facebook; they’re still leaving themselves with an all-access pass to your data to continue doing evil https://www.axios.com/what-apple-facebook-and-google-each-mean-by-privacy-e2d82692-49bf-4a73-971c-b0bf62d3b2b9.html
wonder if this is why my massive Photos collection has barely uploaded anything, after two days? (or perhaps it’s the fact my Photos file is now ~500GB)
Serious Webcam Upgrade
While I'm not a professional streamer, as a remote worker I spend a lot of time in video conferences. So I upgraded my "webcam" to a Canon Rebel SL3 (aka EOS 250D).
Just released the 2nd update to our WebXR Viewer app this week; getting ready for a middle school class I'm going to teach on "Telling Stories using AR", starting this Friday! https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/webxr-viewer/id1295998056?mt=8
